Five more names have been added to the first pro show of the new year.

After Gary Cully was confirmed as the first participant on the February 1st #MTKFightNight, five more names were confirmed to appear on the show soon after.

Dublin’s ‘Big Bang’ Pierce O’Leary was confirmed soon after Cully and followed by Belfast’s Sean McComb, Olympian Steven Donnelly, Omagh’s Callum Bradley and big Dee Sullivan.

If that was the line-up completed, McComb may be favourite to top the bill, although Donnelly would be with a shout of securing a bill topping worthy opponent.

‘The Public Nuisance’ has been one of the break-out stars of the year. He sprinted up the ladder and impressed despite continuous step ups and challenges.

The Belfast fighter will now be looking for rewards to match the risks and will be hopeful 2020 is strap season.

Donnelly equally closed in potential domestic title fights, although he did it in one night rather over the year.

The Rio Olympian claimed Ultimate Boxxer victory and will be looking to use his new found profile to secure some bigger fights.

Dublin’s O’Leary fights for just the third time as a pro and with the active nature of his start, as will Bradley who returns for fourth career bout.

Sullivan will be looking for a return to winning ways after being shocked in the Féile back in August.
